1 2018: No. 2 June Law Society Rules 2015:* Substantive rule amendments implement the regulation of law firms by the Law Society, including the appointment of designated representatives, information sharing between firms and the Society and the self-assessment process; also, a number of consequential amendments bring the rules into alignment with the Legal Profession Act provisions that were proclaimed on April 2, 2018 (definitions of complainant, complaint, conduct unbecoming the profession, disciplinary record, discipline violation, law firm or firm and trust funds and Rules to , 3-1, 3-2, 3-3(4.1), 3.5(9), 3-23(2.1), 3-51(2), 3-53, 3-88, 4-1(1), (2) and (4), 4-4(1), 4-7, 4-8(4.1), 4-10(2), 4-12(1), 4-13(6), 4-15(3), 4-16, 4-38(7), 4-44(1), 5-1(2), 5-5(1), 9-11(1) and Schedule 1, L., 4 and 5: pp , 17, 44, 44.1, , 113, 126, 128, 147, , 176, 178, 187, 188, 208 and 218). New Rule clarifies that functions nominally assigned to the Executive Director may be performed by individuals employed or retained by the Law Society in the course of their employment or retainer; the definition of Executive Director is consequently rescinded (p. 37). The Executive Director, rather than the Discipline Committee, now has the discretion to waive the fee for late filing of trust account where special circumstances exist (Rules 2-85(7), 3-80(4) and 5-14: pp. 86, 142 and 193). The Complainants Review Committee and Practice Standards Committee are authorized to refer matters to the Executive Director for further investigation (Rules 3-14(5) and 3-17(6): pp. 108 and 110). Two minor past errors are corrected (Rules 2-104(7) and 5-12(4) and (5): pp. 96 and 192). Rules were amended in December 2017, effective July 1, 2018, to provide regulations to allow lawyers to transfer trust funds electronically using an online banking platform (Rules 3-64(4) and (6) to (8), , , 3-65(1), (1.1) and (2) and 3-66(2): pp ). After pages are replaced, refer to the Law Society website for provisions that are in effect until June 30, *Historical notes are published only in the website version of the Rules.
